The Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) is the only institute recognized worldwide that grants certification to biofeedback and neurofeedback practitioners. Judy Crawford is BCIA’s Executive Director and one of my dearest friends. We have coffee together (764 miles apart) about five times a week.
The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB), the Biofeedback Federation of Europe (BFE), and the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) all endorse BCIA certification. No other certifying body has been approved by all three of these premier international membership organizations.
Board Certification demonstrates professionalism and adherence to carefully developed standards as a healthcare provider. Healthcare professionals who achieve BCIA Certification demonstrate commitment to professionalism by completing basic degree and educational requirements, endorsing a rigorous code of professional conduct, learning to apply clinical biofeedback skills during mentorship, and passing a written examination.
BCIA was established in 1981 to certify individuals who meet education and training standards in biofeedback and to progressively recertify those who advance their knowledge through continuing education.
Currently, more than 1,500 healthcare professionals have achieved this certification in 32 countries. BCIA now has affiliates in Australia and Mexico.
